You are right, my versions is simpler but different and worse. Maybe it
can be fixed a little...

I don't agree, nested functions are useful to better structure your
program: to really nest things that are logically nested, to have just
one thing when you have only one thing to do, and they help you to
avoid polluting the namespace (those were the main purposes of nested
functions in Pascal-like languages).
